Your scarf is so pretty. A few years ago I made at least 10 similar scarves to give to friends for their birthdays. I couldn't believe their reactions. Everyone loved their scarf and I loved making them. I've never tried the glitter fringe yarn and I think it's about time I did! Thanks for the idea!

Jane, one of the great things about the glitter fringe yarn is that if you make a mistake while knitting, no one will ever be able to tell!

I've made similar scarves with this type of yarn. They're soft & fluffy & look elegant even though they're pretty simple. The yarn is different than traditional yarn & takes a little getting used to at first, but as Anastasia says it hides your mistakes. LOL
